“Cheeseburger” Cody has Surgery, Will Miss 2 Weeks
We learned today that Terrence “Cheeseburger” Cody has had surgery on his swollen knee, and is expected to miss two weeks.
From the Baltimore Sun:
Rookie nose tackle Terrence Cody had surgery to repair the meniscus in his knee last week and will be out for two weeks, coach John Harbaugh said.
The second-round pick is considered questionable for the Sept. 13 opener at the New York Jets.
“There’s a chance he could be back for the opener against the Jets or, for the bigger guys, sometimes it takes a little longer,” Harbaugh said. “The plus is we have a lot of depth on the defensive line right now. That’ll be day to day as we get closer to the game.”
Cody and the Ravens originally believed the 349-pound lineman wouldn’t need surgery. But he had the procedure on Aug. 24.
“He’s got a little bit of a tear in his lateral meniscus and had a loose body floating around in there,” Harbaugh said.
